English Hukamnama Katha-Ang 617


Sorat(h) mehalaa 5 ghar 2 dhupadhae
Sathiguru Arjun Dev Jee Maharaj is blessing us with hukamnama in Sorath ragini, ghar 2 - to be sung in the second house of rhythm and beat. Dhupadhae, this shabad has dhu - two, padhae - meaning feet, meaning two parts to this shabad. Sathiguru Maharaj Sahib Jee begins the shabad with mangalaacharan -

Ik oa(n)kaar sathigur prasaadh ||
There is One Eternal Creator of this entire universe Who brings Light to all, Who brings life to all, Who is the Creator, Nourisher and Destroyer of all, Who is forever sath, Eternal, and is found through the prasaadh, the Grace of The Guru. Sathiguru Maharaj Sahib Jee gives us a very clear message today in the hukamnama. Maharaj Sahib Jee says -

Sagal banasapath mehi baisa(n)thar sagal dhoodhh mehi gheeaa ||
Maharaj Sahib Jee is telling us that sagal - within all of the banasapath - meaning all of the wood, all of the foliage, throughout all of the foliage, throughout all of the wood, throughout all of the trees, throughout all of the plants, mehi - within them is baisa(n)thar - is that fire, is that potential of fire. According to the traditional Indian understanding, that fire, that aganee was locked within each of those plants. Sagal - within all dhoodhh - milk, Sathigur Maharaj Jee says mehi - within that, is gheeaa - is butter. However, if we look at the plants, we cannot see the fire, and if we look at the milk, we cannot see the butter. Maharaj Sahib Jee is explaining to us, guramukh piaareyo, just like you have to take a match, and put it upon the log of wood, and you will see the inner fire of the log of wood coming out, you will see the flames with your own eyes. Just like you have to get the milk, clean the utensils, and churn it and churn it, and you will see the butter form in front of your own eyes, in the same way guramukh piaareyo, Sathiguru Arjun Dev Jee Maharaj is telling us, God lives deep within you, deep within all. What do you have to do? You have to take the matchstick of the Guru's shabad, ignite it with your love and devotion, and set it upon your soul, and you will see the roaring flame of Waheguru's jot within you. You will realise, this kai chaanan sabh mehi chaanan hoe - Yours is that Light which shines within everyone, (Ang 663 Line 9 Raag Dhanaasree: Guru Nanak Dev) as Guru Nanak Dev Jee Maharaj says in Aarti. Through the roaring flame of that Light, you will see that jot, that Light of God pervading through all. Sagal dhoodhh mehi gheeaa - and by churning the milk of your mind, body and soul with the paddle, with the churning stick of The Guru's shabad, of The Guru's Words, and Sathiguru Granth Sahib Jee Maharaj tells us rasanaa naam japahu thab mathheeai ein bidhh anmrith paavahu ||2||- If you chant the Naam, the Name of the Lord, with your tongue, then the curd will be churned. In this way, the Ambrosial Nectar is obtained. ||2||( Ang 728 Line 6 Raag Suhi: Guru Nanak Dev) with your rasanaa, with your tongue, japahu - meditate upon the Word of The Guru, thab matheeai - this is the way of churning that milk within you. Ein bidhh a(n)mirth paavahu - this is the way of achieving immortality, the nectar of immortality, if you churn your mind and body and soul. What does it mean to churn? It means to take away the excess, to churn all of that away and to get the essence, that butter. To churn away the paap, to remove them, and to get to the essence, the butter, That all pervading Waheguru, That jot, That Light is within us.

Ooch neech mehi joth samaanee ghatt ghatt maadhho jeeaa ||1||
That jot, that Light of God is samaanee - is pervading through ooch - those who are high up and sit upon thrones, neech - those who are lowly and walk on the streets, ooch - those who are high up because of their virtues, neech - those who are lowly and have no virtues, Sathiguru Maharaj Sahib Jee says that Waheguru is pervading through all of them, just like that fire is pervading through the tallest tree through to the smallest plant, just like the butter is potentially there within the smallest cup of milk and the greatest jugs of milk. Ghatt ghatt - in everyone's heart, maadhho - The Lord of all of this Maya, of this illusion, The Creator of all of this illusion, jeeaa - means husband in certain languages. That husband Lord is in each ghatt ghatt, in each heart, and jeeaa also means within each being, within the heart of each being, my maadhho, my Lord, my Waheguru is pervading.

Sa(n)thahu ghatt ghatt rehiaa samaahiou ||
Sa(n)thahu - Sathiguru Maharaj Sahib Jee is explaining with so much love, they call out to us and say, O saints, O beloved congregation of The Guru, ghatt ghatt rehiaa samaahiou. If you ask me where my Waheguru is, I tell you that Waheguru Jee is rehiaa - is pervading through, samaahiou, and permeating through ghatt ghatt, each and every heart.

Pooran poor rehiou sarab mehi jal thhal rameeaa aahiou ||1||
Waheguru Jee is pooran, is perfect. If we say Waheguru Jee is divided, no, Waheguru Jee is Eternally One, but pervading through all. Anaek hai(n) fir eaek hai(n) - countless and yet One as Guru Gobind Singh Maharaj Jee says in Jaap Sahib. That pooran, That perfect Lord Waheguru is giving everyone poor, is giving everyone what they need, poor means everything that they need to survive. Rehiou sarab mehi - and is in sarab, in all. Waheguru Jee is aahiou - is pervading through rameeaa - means That Lord God, through the jal - through the waters, through the thhal - the land. Just like those beings whose heart is full of the water of the God's love, those who are permeated with The Lord's love, and those who are dry of God's love, those who are turned away from The Lord, like the dry land, Waheguru Jee is pervading through all of them.

rehaao ||
Rehaoo - Guru Arjun Dev Jee says pause and think about this. Maharaj Sahib Jee tells us the way of getting to The Lord God.

Gun nidhhaan naanak jas gaavai sathigur bharam chukaaeiou ||
Sathiguru Maharaj Sahib Jee says that I gaavai - sing, the jas - the praises, the virtues of that nidhhaan, that treasure of all gun, of all virtue, Waheguru. How did I realise that I had to do this? Because the True Guru bharam chukaaeiou - chukaaeiou means to remove, The True Guru removed all of my bharam - all of my doubts. What is bharam? To believe something which is not. Like in the night you look at a rope and think it's a snake because of the darkness. You see shadows in the darkness, you think they're people waiting for you. But no, when the Light is turned on, you see the rope is a rope, you see the shadows are merely shapes. The Guru has taken away this illusion that this world is permanent. The Guru has put into the mind that this world is temporary, that only Waheguru Jee is Eternal, therefore I am churning my mind with the churning stick of The Guru's shabad. I've taken the matchstick of The Guru's shabad and lit it with love in order to find that Lord Waheguru Who is -

Sarab nivaasee sadhaa alaepaa sabh mehi rehiaa samaaeiou ||2||1||29||
Sarab - within all, nivaasee - to be pervading through. However, if we say, does Waheguru Jee become stained whilst being in the sinner, or does Waheguru Jee get stained by any of the illusions? No. Sadhaa alaepaa - forever and ever he is alaepaa - Waheguru Jee is unattached. Yes Waheguru Jee is within the saint, yes Waheguru Jee is within the sinner, yes Waheguru Jee is within the king and the poor, but Waheguru Jee is forever unattached. Guru Sahib Jee says remember this, that Waheguru Jee is samaaeiou - pervading through sabh, through all. So on this day, Sathiguru Arjun Dev Jee Maharaj is giving us a very clear message, O sa(n)thahu, O saints, O beloved Sikhs, remember That Waheguru is pervading through all. If you want to see, and if you want to be united with That Waheguru, churn your insides, churn your mind, remove the filth of the world. When all that filth has been churned out through the churning stick of The Guru's shabad, then you will receive the butter of the presence of The Lord of all times.

Gun nidhhaan naanak jas gaavai sathigur bharam chukaaeiou ||
Sarab nivaasee sadhaa alaepaa sabh mehi rehiaa samaaeiou ||2||1||29||

Waheguru Jee Ka Khalsa Waheguru Jee Ki Fateh.
